This summer at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, for the first time ever in the history of the Olympics, a team will act as a symbol for all those displaced from their homes by crisis. It is an honour for us to cheer on the Refugee Olympic Team, a group of ten top-tier athletes representing refugees around the world. Before the Opening Ceremony on 5 August, we want you to “join the team” and support these incredible athletes as they make their dreams come true.

WHEN: Starting the week of 1 August
